What Have We Been Learning?
In the Autumn Term we worked on phase 2 phonics, blending these sounds to read words and segmenting to spell. In maths, we used Numberblocks to help us to recognise our numbers and explore different ways that numbers are made up. We have explored a range of different materials and resources in art. In music, we listened and responded to a variety of genres of music. We learnt to identify the beat and recognise when the tempo has changed. In PE we had weekly outdoor games sessions and indoor gymnastic sessions. Every Friday we had forest school.
As we have started the Spring Term we have begun learning on our 'Let's Celebrate' topic. We have started by learning about birthdays and weddings. Later in the term we will be learning about a range of different festivals. In PE we are moving onto a unit of indoor athletics. The children have made super progress in phonics and we are working, as a class, on phase 3 phonemes, whilst also allowing children who need further exposure to phase 2 to consolidate their learning. In maths, we have been focusing on addition.
